Hi I have got issue in this rom. Using google map to navigate but seems gps not working to locate my movement.
I had the same issue after flashing. I got it fixed with the following steps:
1 Download the app "GPS Status and Toolbox" in the play store.
2 Go to the menu in "Manage A-GPS data" select "reset" then "download" in the same window
3 Go back to the main window and keep the phone busy outdoors for approximately 5 min. and wait for the GPS lock. (You will see it in the app)
4 That's it. Since then my GPS is back and stable as it was in stock.

Any1 tried dirty flashing this on top of the february patch? Not sure if I have to "downgrade" to September, since the OP doesn't mention the "newest" stock build.

I dirty flashed over my stock back in March, so I am assuming I was on the February OTA as I usually jump on new updates every month. The only thing I noticed was the GPS sort of issue as mentioned above but after going through the steps above a couple of times it worked well this week.

I sometimes try out other ROMs just to see if I'm missing something, but I keep coming back to PixelDust. It's everything I want, solid, and snappy. Sounds like the latest GPS bug is present in the source.

Thanks for all of your hard work, @spezi77, and for keeping this updated. You rock and we all appreciate it!

How do you update from the last version of Pixel Dust? I don't have TWRP permanently installed as I was having issues for some reason ... so I'm using a patched Pixeldust boot file.

Installation%20guide.png


Pre-requisites:
* You are familiar with helping yourself out of awkward situations. You won't defame or complain at the developer of this ROM for your misfortunes.
* You are familiar with using fastboot
* Before you are ready to flash this custom ROM, you have to install the latest factory image from October 2021
* Bootloader unlocked
* You have created a backup of your ROM & data

First time installing PixelDust ROM, or coming from another ROM:

YOU MUST HAVE RECENT FACTORY IMAGE FLASHED TO BOTH SLOTS BEFORE YOUR FIRST TIME INSTALLING ROM.

1. Flashing stock ROM / unlock bootloader (If applicable):
  1. Follow these instructions: https://developers.google.com/android/images#blueline
  2. Boot the stock ROM.
  3. Don't setup any google account, don't add a screen lock. Just go to Settings > System > Developer options. Enable OEM unlocking.
  4. You need to follow this guide to unlock your bootloader.
2. There are now two options for the installation. Either via TWRP (you are required to remove the screen lock) or via Sideload (for advanced users).

A. Flashing PixelDust ROM via TWRP:

  1. Important: Before you begin, remove the screen lock (password/PIN/pattern) or change to "Swipe". Go to Settings > Security >Screen lock.
  2. Download the ROM and both TWRP files (img + zip) (for download links see above).
  3. Boot fastboot mode.
  4. Connect the phone to the Computer with USB cord.
  5. Copy twrp-3.6.0_11-0-blueline.img to the platform-tools folder or folder that has fastboot in it and rename it twrp.img.
  6. Open a Command Prompt.
  7. At the Command Prompt type and press enter.
    Code:
     fastboot boot twrp.img
  8. If requested, swipe to allow modifications.
  9. Tap "Wipe", then tap "Format data" and type yes to continue.
  10. Copy the rom zip and twrp-installer-3.6.0_11-0-blueline.zip to your device.
  11. Tap "Install", select the rom zip, tap "Add more Zips", select the twrp-installer.zip and Swipe Slider to install.
  12. When install is successful tap on "Reboot", then tap on the first list item "System".


B. Flashing PixelDust ROM via sideload:

  1. Download the ROM and boot image (for download links see above)
  2. Boot fastboot mode
  3. Connect the phone to the Computer with USB cord.
  4. Flash the boot image (this allows stock recovery to flash unsigned rom zip)
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot_aosp_xxx.img
  5. Wipe userdata (required for first PixelDust/Android 12 install)
    Code:
    fastboot erase userdata
  6. Reboot into fastbootd
    Code:
    fastboot reboot fastboot
  7. Use volume keys and power button to select "Enter Recovery"
  8. Select "Apply Update from ADB"
  9. Sideload the ROM zip
    Code:
    adb sideload PixelDust-SnowCone-aosp-blueline-user-xxx.zip
  10. Reboot


Dirty flashing PixelDust ROM (coming from Android 12):
Just skip the step "Format data" / "Wipe userdata"

I just finished installing it and found this rom overview to be quite good, worth using, but I see that there are still some errors as follows The first is the error of the wifi and sim's signal, it's often flickering, then it's a little annoying again. Next is the error when pulling the notification bar down. Temporarily I see those two errors only.

Anyone know if eSIM works?

Never mind, I got impatient and just tried it. I can confirm that eSIM with Mint Mobile (T-Mobile MVNO) works perfectly fine, though I did need to reset my network settings and reboot before I was able to successfully download the eSIM.

    @spezi77 any chance we could get the boot image for the

    PixelDust-Snowcone-aosp-blueline-RELEASE

    build that was made available via updater on July 13? The OP only has links to the June build and I'd like to patch with Magisk. Unless there's a better way to get root?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: never mind, looks it follows a pattern and the URL should be

    bump, issue = it wont read the sim card for me, anyone else?
    On the latest build but updated OTA. No issues with sim card but have the Google Wallet security issues. Is Google Wallet working for you with a clean flash?

    Just curious, have you already tried a different sim card? I did have an issues with my Pixel 3 earlier where my sim card died and had to get a replacement.

    YOU MUST HAVE RECENT FACTORY IMAGE FLASHED TO BOTH SLOTS BEFORE YOUR FIRST TIME INSTALLING ROM.​
    Let me first say that as a user of the PixelDust ROM, I appreciate all that you do! Love it!

    With the recent $130 Pixel 3 (64GB in "Not Pink") deal from B&H, I picked up a couple to upgrade some family members, and PixelDust would never replace the latest (June 2021) stock ROM from Google. I figured out that it's because of the both slots thing that it wasn't working. Which is fine - you said it needed to be done - but nowhere did I see it written out how to do this.

    So I'm writing out the commands I used. For reference, this worked on three brand new Pixel 3 (Verizon versions, but with the bootloader able to be unlocked) that shipped with the November 2018 build of Android 9.

    Code:
    fastboot --slot all flash bootloader bootloader-blueline-XXXX-#.#-#######.img
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    
    [wait for phone to reboot]
    
    fastboot --slot all flash radio radio-blueline-XXXX-#####-######-X-#######.img
    fastboot reboot bootloader
    
    [wait for phone to reboot]
    
    fastboot --set-active=a
    fastboot -w update image-blueline-XXXX.######.###.zip
    
    [wait as it goes through fastbootd and eventually restarts to Android on its own]
    [reboot into the bootloader]
    
    fastboot --set-active=b
    fastboot -w update image-blueline-XXXX.######.###.zip
    
    [wait as it goes through fastbootd and eventually restarts to Android on its own]
    [reboot into the bootloader]
    
    [flash PixelDust per instructions in the OP]

    Essentially, I could flash the bootloader and radio to both slots at the same time, but had to flash the system image to each slot separately.

    Maybe this will help someone else!

    New build with March security patch and some more features/ bug fixes is released.

    Have a nice day
